We are looking for partners to work with us to innovate our tools and visualisation systems to a new level of capability, using the very latest technologies for viewing, interpreting and creating the next generation of meteorological services. In April 2020, the Met Office ran an early market engagement for its future Visualisation tool. Since that exercise was completed, the Met Office has made the decision to expand the scope of the project to include some of the additional tools used by Operational Meteorologist to deliver services to its customers. By broadening this scope, the business seeks to introduce a modern, agile and future-proof toolset which provides the flexibility and resilience to deliver ongoing services to customers in an evolving market The Met Office wishes to understand the maturity of the marketplace and its potential to deliver the requirements set out in this document. Using the responses to this engagement, the Met Office is looking to build confidence that suitable suppliers exist to deliver the various capabilities and to validate/refine the initial rough order of magnitude costs that the project is currently using to build the project’s Business Case.
